I worked at Bloomberg L.P. full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Office culture, solid base pay,

Cons

Metrics aren't realistic at times, numerous leadership changes in the non-core businesses resulted in a lack of direction and overall poor performance of said business units. Even if you don't work for one of these units it will directly impact your bonus.. So it matters!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Put leaders with a strong Bloomberg background in charge of the various business units. DC needs help!

    I worked at Bloomberg L.P. full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of technology projects.
    Plenty of perks inside and outside the office (some people don't take enough advantage of these).
    Decent hiring process.
    Good mentorship for junior hires (college recruiting is very well done).

    Cons

    Deadline-oriented development.
    Explicit tracking of hours in the office and hours "billed" to various departments (most developers aren't used to billing time like lawyers).
    Virtually impossible to get rid of poor performers (usual fear of lawsuits).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The compensation structure seemed to get more complicated over time, which isn't good for employees.
